error sending messages in Outlook 2007 (used to work)
Posted on 2011-10-11
I have a problem that started a few weeks ago on my XP machine. All of a sudden I could not send any messages in Outlook 2007. I can receive messages, I can use webmail to send/receive messages, and my coworkers can send/receive messages. The issue is solely with sending messages through Outlook on my PC.
I created a new profile in the Control Panel and that seemed to solve the issue... for a day or so. Then I started having the same issue again.
I have since gotten a new computer (Windows 7). I installed Outlook 2007, transferred over my pst file, and everything worked perfectly... for a couple of days. Now I can't send email again. (I can still receive)
I have tried compacting my pst file, which is quite large (1.1 GB). I also have a large archive.pst folder (1.5GB). Could these large pst files be corrupting my profile? I can attempt to clean them out to reduce the size, but that will take a long time and I'm not even sure it would resolve the issue. I cannot find anything on a size limitation for pst files.
